As used by police officers and special government agents world-wide, the Glock 17 is undoubtedly the workhorse of the law enforcement field. KWA has been producing some of the highest quality glocks in the airsoft market. Their line include the 17, 18, 19, 23 and 26.
The lower frame/grip is constructed out of reinforced composite while the slide and barrel are metal so this pistol has the same metal content as the real firearm. The slide is made out of magnesium that makes it lighter to other models. It features white dot combat sights and a contoured grip that fits comfortably into either the left or right hand. The railed frame can accept weaver mounting flashlights and laser gun sights. The model features functional magazine realease, slide catch and release. Prior to shooting the user must cycle the slide that produces an interesting metallic sound.
The KWA M17 comes standard with high flow valves and metal slide giving it a strong recoil as the slide snaps back with a resounding "clank"! Just like the real steel, this Glock also sports an internal hammer. Also disassembles in the same manner as the real steel. You can also install a threaded barrel to take a silencer! The KWA G17 comes with a 23 round magazine that contains both the BBs and green gas propellant. The adjustable Hop Up requires a spesific adjustin tool that is included in the package.
The Glock pistol, sometimes referred to by the manufacturer as a Glock "Safe Action" Pistol, is a series of polymer-framed, short recoil operated, locked breech semi-automatic pistols designed and produced by Glock Ges.m.b.H., located in Deutsch-Wagram, Austria. They were the second pistols to incorporate polymer frames (HK P70 being the first). Glock pistols are extremerely reliable and they are considered the AKs of pistols. The Glock 17 is a 9mm variant of the standard line of Glocks.
